Art Exhibition: Vice + Virtue
The Northern Illinois University Art Museum presents Vice + Virtue, an exhibition exploring the concepts of virtue and vice as they have been depicted throughout the evolution of visual culture. Showcasing artwork from over forty-five artists, Vice + Virtue will present an eclectic mix spanning highly-detailed engravings from old-master printmakers to lusciously-vivid compositions by contemporary painters. A selection of folk art will also be included, along with an assortment of pop culture memorabilia. From the gravely-earnest to the playfully-witty, Vice + Virtue delivers a thought-provoking overview of innocence and sin, including ambiguous areas of overlap or intersection.
This exhibition runs weekdays through February 23 at the NIU Art Museum at Altgeld Hall, the castle building. For more information, please visit www.niu.edu/artmuseum.
